Jumping Itself: Sharknado 3 Reviewed

23 Aug
Oh... just go.

Oh… just go.

Let me get this out of the way first. I love Sharknado.

The first movie was much more entertaining than what I was expecting and than it had any reason being (considering The Asylum was behind it). Sharknado 2 outright blew me away. It actually made it onto my Mount Rushmore of modern B-Movies (along with Supershark, Ice Twisters, and Mega Piranha). That said, something kept gnawing at me whenever I saw a promo or trailer for the latest in the Chum Trilogy (probably not what they call it, but hey). I think part of the unease was the realization that they might have hit on the perfect formula with the last iteration, and trying to top it would cross that line from awesomely bad to just bad. Was I paranoid, or were my fears justified? Continue reading

B-Movie in AAA Clothing – San Andreas Reviewed

9 Jun
Not a GTA Sequel...

Not a GTA Sequel…

It’s rare that I get to see a movie suitable for this blog in the theater. Sure, every once in a while there will be a “special” screening (seeing Sharknado in the theater was pretty awesome), but for the most part today’s b-movie goes straight to video. And San Andreas is a b-movie.

It’s just one with a gigantic budget. Which I gotta say, in this case makes the experience all the better for it. Continue reading

NEWS FLASH – ‘Sharknado 2: The Second One’ premieres tonight

I’m sure everyone is aware by now, but for those of you who happen to be living under a rock…Sharknado 2: The Second One is being shown on UK Syfy channel tonight at 9pm – “minutes after the US”. Squeeeeeeeeee!

Feast your eyes on the trailer to prepare yourself:

In Your Eyes

25 May

While this isn’t really the type of film we’d normally write about on Two Geeks, it is Joss Whedon so it’s relevant in a way.

In Your Eyes

I’d seen In Your Eyes mentioned on a few blogs. It’s a Joss Whedon-penned vimeo-streamed feature film – available for rent for 72 hours online now. He wrote and produced it but it was directed by Brin Hill. It’s an interesting move in a number of ways – it’s a jump to low-budget for Whedon and also the direct online rental aspect is a bit of a change from the traditional methods – or using big streaming services like Netflix. Having had a look around the “On Demand” section of Vimeo, I’m not seeing anything that grabs me as much or has any big names but it’s a nice idea – the site says “most of the cash goes to the maker”.

Anyway, on to the film. Merely 3 minutes in, I was sold. Two kids, miles apart, linked together by a psychic bond. Both get injured when one gets hurt – as we find out when Becky has a sledging accident and Dylan shares her experience in a crowded classroom at school.

And there was much rejoicing!

2 Apr

At a recent Horror magazine festival (Horrorhound Weekend), Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine let slip that there will be a sequel to everyone’s favourite creepy-cabin-in-the-woods horror spoof – Tucker and Dale Vs Evil (read our review here).

The first film has attained cult status and frankly, I’ve never met a geek who didn’t love it.  While there is that ever-present worry that a sequel might fail to meet up to the standards of the original – which is highlighted by the actors themselves in the discussion panel (see the video) – I’m fairly confident that they’ll ace this one.  I can’t wait!
